Broken sewer line triggers water advisory in parts of Aventura, NE Miami-Dade

AVENTURA, FLA. (WSVN) - - Crews have repaired a broken sewer line in Aventura that prompted county officials to issue a water advisory, Monday.

7Skyforce HD hovered above Miami-Dade Water and Sewer crews as they worked on repairing the rupture at 7900 Williams Island Blvd., east of U.S. 1. Officials said the 18-inch sewer line break resulted in a spill into a body of water in the area.

Officials urged residents to avoid contact with water at Maule Lake and Little Maule Lake, as well as the kayak launch and swimming area at Oleta River State Park.

Officials from Oleta State Park said visitors are still welcome. “The park is still open,” said Jeff Kneisley, assistant park manager. “We still have picnic areas and bike trails open.”

The advisory also applies to the following private marinas:

  • Marina Palms Yacht Club
  • Williams Island Marina
  • Plaza del Prado Condominium Marina
  • Commodore Plaza Condominium Marina

The Florida Department of Health and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources are testing the water. Officials will not lift the advisory until two consecutive days of clear testing occur.
